I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Yesterday, I added a post for a delicious Leftover Turkey or Chicken Pot Pie Soup. Today, I wanted to share one more idea for using your leftover Turkey. I have a very tasty recipe for a Chicken Noodle Soup. I used this soup recipe and substituted the chicken and noodles for leftover turkey and wild rice. It was a tasty and delicious way to use up the last of my turkey. I also made Turkey Cranberry Grilled Cheese Sandwiches to go with it. Both of them were amazing!! I do not say this often, but I love these leftovers. If you need an idea to use up the rest of your turkey, try one of these soups or this scrumptious Turkey Cranberry Sandwich.
Leftover Turkey or Chicken Wild Rice Soup
- 12 cups (2 - 32 ounce containers of Chicken Broth)
- 3 chicken breasts OR ( 3 to 4 cups Leftover Turkey)
- 2 bay leaves (remove before serving)
- 1/2 teaspoon Poultry seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon Thyme
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups onion, finely chopped
- 2 cups carrots, shredded
- 2 cups celery, finely chopped
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 6 ounce box wild rice - I use Uncle Ben's rice INCLUDING the seasoning pack.
- Add everything to the crock-pot except heavy cream.
- Cook for 3 hours on high.
- Add the heavy cream.
- Continue cooking on high for an extra 30 minutes to an hour.
- If using chicken breasts, chop them up and add back to the crock-pot.
- Put the crock-pot on warm until ready to serve.
